Who Do You Think Could Play a Young Lara Croft?

Word on the street is the next Tomb Raider movie will be a prequel in which Lara Croft's origin story is revealed. Producer Dan Lin is all kinds of excited for the next movie, saying this one will be "more realistic" than past movies. He continued, "I would say it's like Terminator — character-driven action. I think for me the Lara Croft games and movies have gone a little too action-oriented. I wanted to have action, but with character." And Angelina Jolie will not be reprising her role, since the origin story will require a young Lara Croft.

There were some mixed feelings about this project initially, but now that it sounds like it'll be a different take on the role (so, not a straight remake of stuff Jolie's already done), are you any more sold on it? What young actress do you think could step into the butt-kicking boots of a younger Lara Croft?

Please do not pick Megan Fox... If they are going for more character in these films they should choose someone with acting chops. I'd hope they wouldn't sink so low as to cast the Angelina wannabe.

Emily Browning - she's a young Angelina! IMO, Megan Fox and Olivia Wilde - biologically, they may be younger than Angelina - but they don't look THAT much younger...they don't look any younger now than Angelina did in the first Tomb Raider don't see how that would work for a pre-quel.

Oh, and I do like the idea of Olivia Wilde as well. I guess it depends on how "young" the studio wants to go.

Based on general looks alone, besides Megan Fox, maybe Jessica Lowndes (new 90210) or Ashley Greene (Twilight). Not sure about the acting shops, but regardless, there's no equal substitution for Angelina :P

1) Megan Fox can't act herself out of a paper bag - if Lin wants the new Lara to have character, Fox REALLY isn't the right gal 2) Mila Kunis is too short - good if Lara had a younger, shorter sister maybe? 3) Neither Dushku/ Bilson can act (also again, Bilson is waaaay short - whilst actors can bulk up etc. her frame is literally so small I don't see how casting her would work unless the films about a 14 yr old Lara!) Sorry bout all the negativity but I really don't think that there have been any suitable suggestions. Some of the actresses suggested are absolutely gorgeous but either don't have the body/ acting ability to play Lara. I think they're better going for an unknown or something..... They really lucked out with Angelina the first time - she IS Lara - face, body etc.

summer glau and olivia wilde are great ideas. Basically anyone NOT megan fox. It's not that I don't like her, really the only thing i've ever seen her do is Transformers which wasn't really any acting, but I'm so sick of the comparisons of her and angelina it's getting old!

Hm...I vote for an unknown as well. I loved the original games, and I love Angie's role in the original Tomb Raider movies, and I'm excited for this as well. Although I will be very upset if they choose Megan Fox; her voice seems too....not Lara to me. I don't think she could pull off a realistic accent.
